This research aims to investigate influences over the club selection of basketballers in Thailand. In order to undertake a survey of professional basketballers’ opinions in all regions of Thailand with a quota sampling technique, 470 questionnaires were collected and analyzed by which the population groups were divided according to genders and age ranges. The results indicate that the relationships among employees and the growth opportunity in the club positively influence on preference for the club selection of Thai basketballers. With regard to one of the influences concerning the players’ class: the elite players and the amateur players, the former manifests a positive inclination of the club selection to relationships among employees in the club, whilst the latter signifies a positive inclination of the club selection to the salary. In addition, age is significantly correlated to the factors of the club selection as well. The age range between 15 and 25 years old has a positive influence on relationships among employees and the growth opportunity in the club. When it comes to the types of occupations, they are likewise significantly correlated to the factors of the club selection. Playing basketball as a main profession reveals a positive influence on relationships among employees in the club, whilst playing basketball as a minor profession indicates a positive influence on proper positions. These aforementioned findings may most likely be imparted upon the manager to formulate the potentially teamwork basketball club, like good comradeship and esprit de corps, as well as enhancing the basketball industry in Thailand.
